through congress require the plans to insure people even with preexisting conditions. the problem is many people would only buy insurance even -- only when they got sick. the government would have to create a big risk pool. forcing all of us to get health insurance. young people would have to subsidize the rest of the population. they'll face fines if they don't participate but the report says the fines are too low and many will opt out causing big premium hikes for everyone else. >> it is going to result in higher healthcare costs for families and employers. even if the senate finance committee moves this forward today, it has to be merged with other plans working their way through congress.
